Today's employers face tough decisions in health and welfare benefit plan management. Rising costs, increasing scrutiny and frequently-changing regulations are just some of the challenges with which we assist our clients. We understand the pressures and complex issues companies face and provide efficient and valuable advice on the design, implementation and administration of all facets of health and welfare benefit programs, including wellness programs, whether your goal is cost containment, keeping up with reporting and disclosure requirements, cutting edge plan design, or proactive risk management.
We service companies of all sizes, from Fortune 500 companies to small, private companies, startups and tax exempt organizations. The lawyers in our group have broad and deep experience in areas including health care reform, COBRA, HIPAA and related privacy and security issues, retiree benefits, VEBA and other funding vehicles, service provider agreements and claims management. We are also actively involved in advising employers on how the Supreme Court’s recent DOMA ruling impacts eligibility for and taxation of health and welfare benefits.
